Arches traditional printmaking papers have been the world standard for centuries. One of the exciting features of the Arches papers is that when you use them, you are using papers that have been used by famous artists for over 400 years, including Van Gogh, Chagall and Picasso. Cylinder mould-made, acid free and buffered, these exceptionally beautiful papers can be used for drawing, printmaking, multimedia techniques and alternative processes.

Arches 88 is a heavyweight, 140 lb., 100% cotton fiber highly absorbent waterleaf paper. With a very smooth surface, it is the ideal medium for screen-printing, letterpress, blind embossing, gold tooling and, if slightly moistened, for intaglio. It is perfect for DASS Art Pigment Transfers.

*DASS Art Premium Transfer Film, Dual Film and Arista-II Ultra Clear 5-mil Transparency Film are recommended for the Purell DASS ART Digital Pigment Transfers. We suggest using a luster type photo paper profile so that Photo Black Ink is used. The Arches 88 paper MUST be well soaked with Purell on both sides in order for the transfer to be successful.
